John Boehner Breaks Down During Election Night Speech, and Joe Scarborough Can't Help But Make Fun of Him (VIDEO)

The GOP's historic gains in the House of Representatives have made soon-to-be Speaker John Boehner one of the most important people in American politics. During his speech Tuesday night, the Ohio Congressmen broke down repeatedly as he recounted his personal history of "chasing the American dream," waiting tables, mopping floors, putting himself through college and working in a small business.

The gang played the clip of Boehner's waterworks on 'Morning Joe,' (weekdays, 6 AM ET on MSNBC), and Joe Scarborough couldn't help but take a little dig at Boehner's man tears.

"Even John Boehner can't believe he's Speaker," Joe quipped, triggering laughter on the panel and in the live audience.

"That was nice," Mika Brzezinski opined.

It should be pointed out that this isn't the first time the perpetually tan Boehner, who is known for getting emotional when speaking, has cried in public.

Whether you think these salty displays show sincerity or are a bit much, we can probably all agree that between Boehner's tan and his tears, the folks over at Saturday Night Live should have some really good material to work with.
